July 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Chef Chris Sherrill a local Orange Beach business owner of Staycations Catering & EAT Restaurant has been hand selected for the BP’s Spirit of the Gulf at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Yesterday BP announced the team of Chef’s that will be headed to the Olympic Games. Eight of the best chefs from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida are preparing the freshest seafood the Gulf has to offer for the U.S. Olympians, their families and visitors to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

More than 1,000 people each day will be encouraged to visit the Gulf Coast, sample the world’s freshest and best-tasting seafood and experience the Gulf’s unique culture and distinctive attractions.

BP believes the London 2012 Olympic Games are the ultimate demonstration of human sporting endeavor, bringing together extraordinary athletes from around the world.
